The Wisdom of Patients: Health Care Meets Online Social Media - CHCF.org | Expertpatient | Scoop.it

Social media on the Internet are empowering, engaging, and educating health care consumers and providers. While consumers use social media — including social networks, personal blogging, wikis, video sharing, and other formats — for emotional support, they also heavily rely on them to manage health conditions.

Marie Ennis-O'Connor's curator insight, March 4, 2013 12:23 AM

 

The Internet has evolved from the information-retrieval of "Web 1.0" to "Web 2.0," which allows people who are not necessarily technologically savvy to generate and share content. The collective wisdom harnessed by social media can yield insights well beyond the knowledge of any single patient or physician, writes report author Jane Sarasohn-Kahn. The outcome of this development is "Health 2.0" — a new movement that challenges the notion that health care happens only between a single patient and doctor in an exam room.

 

Using examples, this report describes how the web is becoming a platform for convening people with shared concerns and creating health information that is more relevant to consumers. Social networks, ranging from Facebook to specific disease-oriented sites, are proliferating so rapidly that new services are already under development to help health consumers navigate through the networks.

 

The report details how innovative collaborations online are changing the way patients, providers, and researchers learn about therapeutic regimens and disease management. It examines the benefits and concerns regarding Health 2.0 and includes an extensive listing of health media resources. According to the report, the growing demand for transparency will drive the evolution of social media in health. A growing array of tools will become available that are increasingly mobile, as well as personal health data storage in commercial products like Microsoft Health Vault, Google Health, and others. The author concludes that the ongoing demands of a consumer-driven health marketplace will inspire innovation in applications that integrate clinical, financial, and ratings information.

Interesting that G+ ranks #2 with so few people actually using it as a network. Shows the power of Google that everybody feel like they have to belong to it but so many don't use it :-) Nobody wants to get left behind.

We Sleep How We Eat

We Sleep How We Eat | Expertpatient | Scoop.it
It's no secret: We are what we eat. And turns out, we might sleep how we eat, too.

Found an association between the number of calories consumed and how long the study participants slept. Those who consumed the most were more likely to be "short" sleepers. Interestingly enough, "normal" sleepers were the next type to consume a lot of calories, followed by "very short" sleepers and then "long" sleepers, researchers found.

The impact of poor sleep on craving for carbohydrate is well known.  This may be why there is a link between sleep apnea and obesity.  Poor sleep increases appetite which increases obesity which may cause upper airway obtruction and more sleep apnea that takes us back to an increase in appetite ( a nevere ending cycle).  Anecdotally most people will admit that being up all night at work, or caring for a child results in an almost insatiable appetite the next day.

The Framinham Risk Score (FRS) is well known.  the score helps divide risk into high medium and low risk of having a heart attack (myocardial infarction) over the next 10 years.  The developres of teh FRS subsequently develped the Heart age which adds predictionof other cardiovascular risks including congestive herat failure and peripheral arterial disease.  Its useful and hopefully motivating as a fist step for patients who are interested in understanding their risk.

Daniel. T,  2013, 'Could Video Games be Used to Improve Youth Health?', Article of Forbes. 

Daniel explains in this article that E-games could provide more exercise than physical education for kids in middle school. The author provides that the studies from George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services demonstrate the ability in using video games to provide an attractive energy-burning P.E.. Their research focuses on 'Exer-games', where middle school students get on the video game 'Dance Dance Revolution' and has proven to burn more calories over traditional P.E. activities. The article is useful, it provides details on how video games benefit people's fitness, however the main limitation is that Daniel's article does not provide studies or information on how this affects adult fitness through video games. It'll be further researched to discover whether video games can be a useful alternative way of exercise.
